Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

Section 47: Supplementary

97.Section 47 contains ancillary provision relating to restraint orders. It re-enacts provision from earlier confiscation legislation and takes account of the enactment of the Land Registration Act 2002. The main purpose of the section is to ensure that where a restraint order affecting land is applied for, its effect may be reinforced by taking action at the Land Registry to prevent the disposal of the land in question.
